Two people who come off to the world as heartless, secretly understand each other's needs. Not getting attached or surrendering to one's feelings is a common attitude found in today's hook-up culture. But, many people have stronger emotions brooding beneath the surface they often fear to express. The lyrics mention two people who love each other, but prefer to keep their "private" life... well private. Hooking up turns into making love, and secretly we all desire affection.
